Re: [sig] Coat patterns a good jumping off point?
- You're refering to the Coat pattern yes? (Your links
aren't working well - it's the parentheses.)
It looks ok, from the vague and small image on the
website. Honestly, I made my coat (and have an order
to make another for a housemate) by using Predslava's
Shirt pattern (also seen on Sofya La Rus's site), and
just putting a slit down the center front. Just as
easy, and the patterns are free. :-) In fact, ALL of
my russian garb is based off the pattern on Sofya's
site; i just vary fabric, length, embellishment, etc.
But then, I'm early Kievan. YMMV, esp if you're doing
a later period.
I was actually thinking the large Embroidered Rushnyky
For Icon would make a decent ubrus....

- You know, I think it all has to do with where and when the patterning of
the clothing went from strictly rectangular construction to the more
"modern" style with rounded armscyes and curved sleevecaps. This tended
to happen in the 1300's in western Europe, but did not happen till much
later (if at all) in others.
I went to a Turkish exhibit a couple years ago and the coats/caftans
were definitely rectangular in construction (see Max Tilke for diagrams)
I have general questions about whether "western construction" had taken
over in many eastern lands. Poland was very western oriented, so maybe,
I don't know about other areas.
Has anyone done a survey on the time frames of when folks switched?
One of the things I'm going to be looking into when we go to Poland next
If you wanted to be "very traditional" I doubt you would go wrong with
rectangular construction for the coat pattern rather than a modern
pattern. After all, even in western Europe, each garment was cut
specifically for the client and each tailor had their own patterns.
